“Making money selling feet pictures…”
I don’t think this is something that people usually lean towards when they want to make money because of the taboo associated with it.
Selling feet pics is often associated with making money by explicit/sexual stuff which keeps people from ever trying or even considering it.
But now, people are beginning to explore their options and opportunities to make money even if it sounds a little unconventional.
This opens up a wide variety of income opportunities for those who would like to make some quick cash.
Take Onlyfans for example, people use to look down upon this platform a few years back, now a record number of people use it on a daily basis to make good money.
Why do people ask for pictures of your feet?
There is a wide variety of reasons why there is a demand for feet images on the internet such as:
- For foot lovers and fetishism: this is a pretty obvious one.
- For artistic reasons: For artists who want to paint body parts or to get a reference from
- Stock pictures: Stock photography websites have to keep a huge collection of images to satisfy customer demands.
But whatever you might think, the market for people willing to make some good cash selling images of their feet is on the rise and it certainly is quite lucrative.
So if you have good-looking feet or just feet for that matter (different people have different preferences, so it doesn’t matter how your feet looks, there is a demand for every type), there are people around the world who are willing to throw cash in your bank account just to get the picture of those feet.
Is selling feet pictures legal?
Yes, in most of the western and other developed countries such as the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc selling feet pictures are absolutely legal.
So if you’re from one of the counties mentioned, you’re good to give it a try, given you are of legal age.
On the other hand, this means of money-making is frowned upon in many counties on accounts of legal age, religious beliefs, country rules, and restrictions.
What is Instafeet?
Instafeet is a fairly new platform for feet lovers where one can sell pictures of their feet. Interested sellers will have to create a seller profile to start posting their pictures. Interested clients then subscribe to your account and buy your feet images.
How Does Instafeet Work?
There are mainly two groups of people on this platform: Sellers and buyers (or creators and subscribers).
A creator account is free-this means you do not have to pay any subscription fees. The only condition is that you must be 18 years or older to be accepted on this site.
And on the other hand, to get started as a subscriber (or a buyer), one must pay a subscription fee of $10 per month to be able to get access.
To get started as a seller, you will have to register on their website so that you can create a seller or creator account.
To complete the sign-up process, you’ll have to provide a valid ID: it can be a passport, or driver’s license photo to verify your identity. You will also need an email address and you will be required to provide your location details as a way to verify your identity further.
Once you are done filling the sign-up form, it will be submitted to the admins who will review your information. If accepted, you will receive an email confirmation with login details you can use to access your creator account.
Once you’re logged in to your account, you will complete your profile and post at least 5 photos to gain subscribers.
To grow your subscribers, you can advertise your Instafeet account (if you’re comfortable with sharing) to your social media where you can direct your followers to your Instafeet account.
Do You Have To Show Your Face On Instafeet?
In short: It is up to you.
You have the complete freedom to choose whether you want to show your face to your subscribers or not. If you think that showing face isn’t a big deal you believe that you can use this to increase how much you charge your subscribers, you should absolutely go for it.
But, you can also be discreet and still make decent money on platforms like Instafeet, maybe not as much as the sellers who do show their faces.
Not showing your face also can act as a disadvantage because most buyers often like to see the face that comes with the feet.
Hope that makes sense!
Either way, you should know that Instafeet is quite serious about safety. So if you do in fact choose to show your face, it will be between you and your paid subscribers.
How Safe is Instafeet?
Yes, Instafeet is safe but there are quite a few complaints from users (mentioned in the later section)
In fact, Instafeet is a private platform and it isn’t available for anyone to join. One must go through a screening process to get approved.
They claim to do a thorough background check before letting anyone through, so you can expect these background checks if you choose to move forward as a seller.
How to Keep Your Instafeet Account Safe?
Instafeet takes every precaution to make sure your privacy is maintained and your account is safe, but still some aspects of your privacy do fall into your own hands too.
Some things aren’t meant to share in general. To ensure your own safety, here are a few things you can do to make sure you’re not exposing any sensitive information:
- Do not disclose your real name, use fake or a screen name just for this platform
- Never reveal your personal details like a phone number or home address to your subscribers no matter what.
- Use secured payment portals such as PayPal or Stripe.
- Use a watermark (your brand name or username) on your images to make sure your content isn’t stolen and is being sold by other sellers by their own name.
- Keep it professional and avoid indulging with anyone outside this platform.
- Set boundaries. If you’re not comfortable showing your face, or anything else other than your feet, do not feel forced to something you do not want to do.
How Much Can I Make On Instafeet?
While there isn’t some set pay rate for every seller on the platform, but typically they get paid anywhere from $5 to $100 per image. Of course, this number can multiply depending upon the number of subscribers you have and your popularity.
For example, if you have 7 subscribers and you charge around $30 per image, you can easily make $210 in a day. But the platform will deduct 10% as a service fee so you can earn like $189 following the above example.
On Trustpilot, Instafeet.com has an overall 2.3/5 star rating, which is a little less than the expected quality of service provided by the platform to its users. Also, there are a few complaints about the platform that are mentioned below.
This is an example of positive feedback about Instafeet that I’ve found.
Even though there are testimonials like the one mentioned above, there are a few aspects that I think could be better.
Firstly, their website is poorly built, it looks a little less put-together if you know what I mean. And the overall website looks newly made, which is kind of a letdown, to be honest.
And there are quite a few negative feedbacks about this platform, such as-
Also, on their own website, it is mentioned that there are around 101,296 Creators for 9385 Subscribers (as of writing this), which means people trying to sell feet pics significantly outnumber the people who would like to buy them.

How do you get paid on Instafeet?
Your payment comes twice a month – on the 1st and 15th. Instafeet will cut their commission from your earnings (which is about 10%) and the rest will be deposited to your account instantly.
Do you have to pay taxes on feet pics?
Yes, you will have to pay taxes on what you earn as you do for any other business model (yes, selling feet pics can also be considered a small business).
You will need to file taxes on the income you make selling feet pictures. And since this might not be considered a proper job as you’re not employed by Instafeet, this income will be taxable under business income.
And as a small online business owner who makes money selling feet pictures, you can operate as a sole-proprietor, and your income will be taxed as a self-employed individual.
How Much Should I Charge For Feet Pictures?
As I’ve already mentioned before, sellers usually make around $5 to $100 for a single image. You can start with a $5 to $10 range and can increase your rates as you get popular and/or as you attract more subscribers.
Make sure to keep your prices at a nominal rate, not too high or people won’t buy them, and not too low so that you won’t lose out on what you deserve.
Instafeet alternatives: What is the best app to sell feet pics other than Instafeet?
There are quite a few platforms you can try other than Instafeet to sell images of your feet. Or you can use multiple platforms at once, you know, to make the most of your time and efforts, just a suggestion.
It is completely up to you.
Feetify is yet another paid feet picture showcase platform similar to Instafeet. They have over 31,570 active members where you can message the buys directly to obtain pictures of their feet.
DollarFeet is a feet picture marketplace similar to Instafeet. Their application process takes 24 hours, and you can get started once they’ve reviewed your submission
Once you are approved, DollarFeet will send you instructions through email on how to set up your account and upload your feet pics & videos.
Another platform similar to the ones mentioned above, FeetFinder is a place to sell or buy exclusive pictures (or even videos) of feet.
As a seller, the signup process just takes a few minutes but does include an extra step of ID verification before your account is approved. Of course, this is to ensure the content is coming from legitimate sellers.
As you may have already known about OnlyFans. it is a subscription content service where people can charge a subscription to view photos and videos.
Think of it as an Instagram account but people have to pay to view the contents inside. How much you charge for a monthly subscription depends on you.
While Onlyfans isn’t exclusive for feet content only, you may use it for making money selling feet images and videos.
OnlyFans can be an excellent option for recurring income. And the more paying subscribers you get, the more money you’ll be able to make off of every month’s subscription fee.
As the name suggests, wikifeet is a Wikipedia of feet pictures that offers paid feet images to its members.
No matter how weird or unusual it may sound but making money by selling feet pics is really a thing.
If you’re interested (I am assuming you are, since you’re here), I would suggest you choose the platform for selling after good research and set some boundaries based on how comfortable or uncomfortable you are.
Despite the complaints, I would say since Instafeet is a private platform, which means they don’t just let anyone use their services without proper verification, there is some trust factor with this platform as far as your identity is concerned.
So if you’re up for making some quick cash by selling images of your feet, you can try Instafeet (or any other platforms mentioned above).
